The document is a page from the 1921 census of Beregszas (now Ukraine, but then in Czechoslovakia, and formerly in Hungary). I already have translations for the column headings. I need interpretation of the handwritten data (in Czech) in rows 1-5 of the form (Sperber, Rosenberg and Weinbach). Lazar Sperber (line 1) is my great uncle, and Hani Weinbach (line 5) is my great grandmother, but I need identification of the other three people and their relationship to Lazar Sperber.
